After sell-out shows at Cork Jazz Festival and standing ovations across the country, Ladies in the Blues takes you on a women’s journey through the blues.

From the gospel roots of the 1920s to vaudeville, jazz and blues rock – immerse yourself in songs by all those great women – Big Mama Thornton, Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald, Janis Joplin, Bessie Smith and many more.

Ladies in the Blues pays homage to these female artists who transformed the blues from local folk music into the art form it is today, bringing black culture into American main stream music.

"A spectacular, opening night stage production, featuring four female singers and a cracking band of blues’ sidemen performing songs written and recorded by women in the history of the blues." Music journalist, Dermot Hayes
